Shows how to use the latest digital technology to create an environment in which people can learn European languages while learning to cook
Paul Seedhouse is Professor of Educational and Applied Linguistics and School Research Director in the School of Education, Communication and Language Sciences, Newcastle University, UK. His monograph "The Interactional Architecture of the Language Classroom" (2004) won the Modern Languages Association of America Mildenberger Prize.
This volume offers a fascinating example of the meaningful
introduction of technology into the language classroom to provide
contextualized, real-world scenarios that, while being authentic,
allow a team of two students to socially create a language
experience together ... A worthy addition to language learning with
technology, and a valuable resource for those who want to create a
similar project. * CALICO Journal *
Overall, the volume represents a valuable addition to project- and task-based research scholarship in digital settings ... Due to its innovative design and careful implementation research agenda, the volume offers insightful ideas and perspectives to those interested in using real spaces to afford foreign language learning. * LINGUIST List *
The book presents a convincing argument for the digital kitchen concept and its expansion into new areas of study. * International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching *
The European Digital Kitchen Project manages to bring pervasive computing practices into the realm of language learning by integrating the everyday task of cooking (with real-world equipment) with language and culture learning through tasks. The chapters in the book not only build a mosaic that helps understand how people engage in a digital sensory environment, they demonstrate that experiential learning in a digital environment provides opportunities for language learning (mainly for lexical items). The project and this book open an exciting research venue into digital sensor technology and how it can be applied for cultural and language learning beyond lexical development and into different environments. -- Marta Gonzalez-Lloret, Professor and Chair of Spanish & LAIS, University of Hawaii, USA
This edited volume provides an innovative take on language and culture learning with technology in a unique context, the digital kitchen. It merges theories and concepts in human computer interaction, computer-assisted language learning, and task-based language teaching in the European digital kitchen to examine how ubiquitous and ambient technology, such as that found in our homes, can support language and culture learning through the cooking of national dishes. -- Shannon Sauro, Associate Professor in the Department of Culture, Languages and Media, Malmoe University, Sweden.
An enjoyable initial interrogation. * BAAL Newsletter *
A wonderful book that paints a bright future for how CALL and TBL can be combined in highly innovative ways. * CALL-EJ *
